SKU: N/A Category:


Our Crescent Zafu meditation cushion cradles you, and gives your legs support on their way down to your zabuton. We especially like our tapered design because the zafu follows your leg-line right down to the floor. Still Sitting offers Crescent Zafus stuffed with kapok or buckwheat, a variety of colors, and a choice between Standard (non-removable cover) or Deluxe (removable cover).

Our crescent buckwheat zafu is packed a little loosely so it will mold to your form.

We stuff our kapok zafu tight to make it soft yet firm to sit on. These zafus have a zippered closure to allow you to adjust the buckwheat or kapok fill.

Our Deluxe Crescent Zafu has an inner lining made of 100% cotton muslin. Each Deluxe Crescent Zafu cover is machine washable with the exception of the Patterned Zafu which we recommend hand-washing or dry cleaning.

If you’d like, you may add an extra Removable Cover of the same or a different color.

For more information on the difference between kapok and buckwheat and choosing the right zafu for you, see our blog.

  1. I am just beginning a yoga/meditation habit at 61. When I sat on the crescent zafu for the first time, I immediately felt relief. I hadn’t realized how out of alignment my spine/pelvis is. Wish I could sleep sitting up on this cushion…. Well made and well crafted! Thank you Still Sitting!

  2. Kapok Fill is very firm; more than expected (this is not a complaint, just empathizing that they’re not kidding when they say it’s packed tightly)

  3. Fits exactly like stated in website description. Works well for me. I’m tall and this supports my legs legs better than other cushions I’ve tried.

  4. This is my first crescent shaped zafu, after using a circular zafu for many years (both kapok filled).
    The Still Sitting team have done an excellent job with their Crescent Zafu. The kapok fill level is near perfect, allowing one to feel full support underneath, while at the same time facilitating uprightness.
    I especially recommend for those wishing to explore Burmese style sitting (one leg in front of the other). The convex area of the crescent allows one to bring one’s heel closer to ones body for added comfort.
    With the Still Sitting (kapok filled) crescent zafu, sitting is easeful (no legs falling asleep or spinal slumping) and almost effortless.
    Thank you, Still Sitting team!

  5. Perfect size and shape. I purchased it with the kapok filling and was able to remove enough of it to adapt to my preferred sitting height.
